Nintendo's showing at E3 wasn't that bad. They announced a new Metroid developed by the Ninja Gaiden team, a sequel to Super Mario Galaxy, both due next year, and a Wii incarnation of New Super Mario Bros with a focus on four-player action.


Miyamoto also confirmed in a round-table that they're working on the next Wii Zelda and that it will have heavy use of Wii Motion Plus.

Bullshit. Your response is an unintelligent low dig that shows zero perception and totally misses the fact that there are serious issues about art being addressed in my post. If you can't think of anything constructive to say, don't say anything.

Kind of ironic coming from the guy who ripped the film to shreds for stupid reasons.

You seem to be the only one who thinks that new actors can't take on established rolls. The actors in the new movie did a fine job for the most part. Yes, they're not the originals. They're not supposed to be. The new film franchise is going after a new audience, and that includes new takes on the characters. If you're too much of a purist to enjoy the new take, that's your own damn problem.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here do pen-and-paper RPG gamery? I'm currently planning a science-fiction themed campaign using the BeSM d20 rules.

I guess a topic to start off with - what is the most ridiculous improvisation you've ever seen a GM do in a campaign?

For example, I once had a player who loved to check for traps where there weren't any. She kept insisting on searching for them even in empty hallways, so I decided to humor her and made a really obvious bear trap. And when she tried to activate it with a bullet, I had it explode like a land mine just to annoy her. It was fun. :)

Lets talk about abortion.
Time

A minuet is a slow, stately pattern dance in 3/4 time for groups of couples, originating in 17th-century France.

 

As for abortion, it's a touchy issue. I don 't believe, for example, that rape victims, or especially young ones, should be forced by law to carry the child to term. At the same time, the idea that most pro-choicers have that abortion is a 'right' scares the hell out of me. The idea that women have a 'right' to take the life of their unborn children is apalling. Abortion is at best a privilege, an evil that is unfortunately sometimes-necessary. At worst, it's a callous and selfish murder.

As a general rule, I avoid movie tie-ins unless they're of a ridiculously high quality, like Escape From Butcher Bay. It saves me money at least. I wish more people would do it and send a message to the developers that if they want us to buy their movie tie-ins to make them good.

Unfortunately, it seems that enough people still buy them that making crappy movie tie-ins is still financially beneficial.
